Rottweiler Puppies With Health / Hip Guarantees
The German Rottweiler is reasonably healthy, disease-free breed. As with most of the large breeds, hip dysplasia can be a problem. Because of this the various Rottweiler Breed clubs have had x-ray testing regimes in place for many years. Osteochondritis Dissecans, affecting the shoulder joints, can also be a problem due to the rottweiler puppies propensity for a rapid growth rate. A reputable rottweiler breeder will have the hips and elbows of all breeding stock x-rayed and read by a recognized expert, as described in the guide here. They have certificates that their breeding animals do not have entropion or ectropion and that they have full and complete dentition with a scissor bite.
One of my rottweilers actually did have something show up in one of these regular tests that we do. The vet told me that she was suffering from arthritis. I was a bit surprised by the diagnosis, she had barely begun to slow down at all. Thankfully we found it on time so she had not been suffering from the joint pain for too long. The vet told me of the medication I was going to have to get to Relieve my dogs arthritis pain. I think it has been helping her, again like I said she wasn’t showing too many signs of it yet. I’m just happy she doesn’t seem to be in pain, and I’m really crossing my fingers that it does not get any worse over time. Remember guys, don’t skip on these regular tests even if everything seems fine, you might catch something serious on time.
As with any of the breed, hereditary conditions occur in some lines. Due to over breeding, cancer has become one of the leading causes of early death in Rottweilers. For mysterious reasons, Rottweiler puppies are more susceptible than other breeds to become infected with parvovirus, a highly contagious and deadly disease of puppies and young dogs. Parvovirus can be easily prevented by adhering to a veterinarian’s recommended vaccine protocol.
